It's safe to say, wires are out. Well, nearly out. Wireless headphones/earphones are taking over, and are quickly becoming the norm for everyone . So, after a long debate with myself, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and treat myself to a pair of AirPods .  For a while, every time I walked down the street, I was guaranteed to see at least one person sporting a pair of AirPods, and now I've joined the pack. Even though they've been around for a couple of years, they're still the most popular, go-to choice for wireless earphones . So, I thought I'd discuss the question; 'are they still worth it in 2020?', let's find out... Price Alright, so I'm gonna be honest,  they're not the cheapest . For £159,  there are cheaper alternatives out there if you don't want to break the bank. However, in my opinion, if you're an avid music consumer, they're definitely worth the price . For me, I listen to music every day, without fa...
So we're here, New Year's Eve. In a matter of hours, not just another year, but another decade will be upon us. I still feel slightly weird saying 2020, anyone else? No? Ok... 2019 has been quite the year. Full of ups, downs, new decisions and a growth in confidence for me, with the likes of my first job, setting myself free from friendships that weren't right for me, and deciding on a new path for my chosen career. So I've decided to share my year, and reflect on the events of 2019, and what I want to achieve during 2020. For the last time this year, sit back, relax, and let's reflect... I started off 2019 in, what I'd say, a completely different position to what I am now. Back then I'd never earned my own money, was in friendships that I didn't feel comfortable in, and didn't feel like I knew where I was going in life.  A big decision I made at the beginning of the year was to start this blog. I was completely clueless as to what...
Remember me? The guy who just fell off the radar a couple of months ago without warning? Yeah...sorry about that. Anyway I'm back! How are you all? It's been a while, and a lot has happened since I took a break, so I decided what better way to return than with an update, getting you all up to speed with what's been happening. So I highly recommend making yourself a cuppa, grabbing a blanket and getting cosy, as we've got some catching up to do. It's been nearly 3 months since I uploaded anything on here or my Instagram, and I should probably start with what's going to be happening for the foreseeable future. Yes I am going to be getting back into blog posts, however there won't be any set in stone schedule that I'm going to stick to. Even though that might be a pain for a lot of people, it's the best way for my blog posts to be the best they can be, and for me to not stress myself out 24/7 haha. So I'm gonna be uploading posts whenever...
You see finesse, you see perfection. You see someone's hard work, and sometimes you gloss over it. Blogging can be incredible. It can bring you endless opportunities and a huge supportive community, but there's things the audience doesn't see, the process of creating what you sit down with your cup of tea to read. Over the past, nearly 9 months, I've come to terms with the darker side of what blogging entails. The pressure, the numbers, the competition, the stress of trying to grow something and create an audience to read what you put the hours into creating. It's hard. This isn't a sympathy post, I'm not complaining about having a blog, because it's one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I really love what I do, but not everything's a walk in the park. I'm going to be deadly honest, and admit that when I first started at the beginning of the year, I thought growth wouldn't be a problem, I'd get plenty of views, ...
If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know that I've always struggled with my skin, and finding products that genuinely work. I've pretty much tried every type of product under the sun. Some have been pretty good, some have been pretty s***. I'd been using the same face wash for a while, scared to try something different in case it completely ruined my skin. However, I wanted to try another brand of charcoal cleanser, as I'd previously tried one from L'Oreal Men, which didn't really work for me. After that, I was kind of put off, but after hearing about Biore everywhere, I felt like I needed to jump on this bandwagon. Background of the Brand If you're not familiar with them, they're the #1 cleansing brand in Japan , and #1 pore strip brand in the UK (which I'm yet to try out). So they're not doing too bad. From their words, they are a pore-focused face care brand that continues the mission to make high quality, affor...
